First Visit

Elaine Maronick Helena Location

Making an Appointment

  • I understand that making the decision and the call to talk to a therapist is a difficult step and that often people are dealing with an urgent situation. I do my best to see you as soon as possible, however, due to a busy schedule, it is not always possible to be seen as soon as you would like.
  • I am a preferred provider for most insurance companies, with the exception of Medicaid and Medicare.
  • Couples Intensives are not billable to insurance.
